A Game of Badminton Anyone?

Found these yesterday and it makes me long for a giant yard with green grass with birdies flying back and forth... Let's add some cute J. Crew shorts and a glass of tea with that.

How fitting these stamps are for the occasion! From Yellow Owl Workshop.
Love your summertime today

"Just Because" Flowers...

I took these shots at a friend's wedding last weekend and it got me thinking about flowers. I haven't been a huge fan of flowers my whole life. I never liked the "I'm sorry" flowers, or "Happy Birthday" or "Happy ______" flowers... but I do love the "just because they're pretty" flowers :)

Me: Time to write in the journal! Im starting the timer for 5 minutes
Him: I would rather have my spleen removed without anesthesia!
